LOFT is a portable battery base for the Google Home that let's you unplug and take Google anywhere you choose. Google Home being the first popular one, users have always portability on the device.

According to reports, Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) will unveil a new smart speaker at a big event next month, which will be smaller, low priced, and compete with Amazon's Echo Dot. It weighs 400g (14.1 ounces) and attaches magnetically to the Google Home so it should technically be a seamless transition from your current base. Say their respective wake words, and they'll act as music streamers, smart home controllers or personal assistants. Simply detach the Google Home base and attach LOFT, and you've got cord-free mobility at home. The Dox looks more compact than the Vaux, and the Vaux only offered six hours of battery. The Loft is estimated to get eight hours of battery life; and since Google's product is created to be a speaker, this whole thing makes a bit more sense, as it could let you take the Home into your backyard while you're grilling, or whatever it is people do in backyards. You can now roam around your house with Google Home or any other place with Wi-Fi in range.

Its maker, Ninety7 is back with two new devices not only for the Amazon Echo but also for Google Home. Grab a LOFT for $39.95 (regular RRP is $49.95), while the DOX can be yours for $29.94 (regular RRP is $39.95). With LOFT, Google Home can easily be used as a portable Bluetooth speaker. Shipping is expected to start in early October so don't delay to bag a bargain. Four LEDs on the front of both the LOFT and the DOX show battery status, while the power button allows you to shut the whole thing down if you want to reserve power.
